Intermountain Medical Center's newborn intensive care unit (NICU) offers advanced, high-tech care from specially-trained physicians and nurses to save the lives and improve the outcomes of babies born with complications.
The NICU offers the most advanced level of newborn care available in the Intermountain region and some new features designed to make the unit more comfortable for moms, dads, and families.
Intermountain Medical Center's 48 bassinets are located in 12 private or semi-private rooms organized in four small patient care units. For parents, this means more privacy with their little ones and a chance to bring in personal touches like photos or toys.
Privacy and quietness is better for babies. Babies who are sick and premature need quiet rest with minimal simulation to heal and grow like they would have in their mother's womb.
